King James Version (KJV)

2 Maccabees 15:30

27. So that fighting with their hands, and praying vnto God with their hearts, they slew no lesse then thirty and fiue thousand men: for through the appearance of God, they were greatly cheered. 28. Now when the battell was done, returning againe with ioy, they knew that Nicanor lay dead in his harnesse. 29. Then they made a great shout, and a noise, praising the Almighty in their owne language: 30. And Iudas, who was euer the chiefe defender of the citizens both in body, and minde, and who continued his loue towards his countrymen all his life, commanded to strike off Nicanors head, and his hand, with his shoulder, & bring them to Ierusalem. 31. So when he was there, and had called them of his nation together, and set the priests before the altar, he sent for them that were of the Towre, 32. And shewed them vile Nicanors head, and the hand of that blasphemer, which with proud brags he had stretched out against the holy Temple of the Almightie. 33. And when he had cut out the tongue of that vngodly Nicanor, he commanded that they should giue it by pieces vnto the foules, and hang vp the reward of his madnesse before the Temple.
